As usual there was a lively discussion of books that might be of interest for our next Cookbook of the Month (COTM) selection, with several titles receiving multiple nominations. But the two that by far garnered the most attention, and the most capitalized nods, were:
"AVEC ERIC" by Eric Ripert. For a sense of Mr. Ripert's background here's a link to his bio: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... And for a sense of the recipes in the book, here's what EYB (great idea Delys!) lists as available on-line: http://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/r... And finally, for those who'd like to watch the TV program that this book was written to accompany here's a link: http://www.aveceric.com/category/epis...
"NEW FOOD OF LIFE" by Najmieh Batmanglij. For a sense of Ms. Batmanglij's background, here's a link to her bio: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... And for some of her recipes: http://www.mage.com/cooking/NFLREC.html and http://www.najmiehskitchen.com/nk_new... (note: not all of these in the second link are from the nominated book) And for a sense of Ms. Batmanglij in the kitchen, here she is giving a demo on two techniques: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYGDs...
